All organizations have a brand or corporate identity and the way in which it is perceived is often vital to the way in which clients and employees respond to that organization. The key to good brand identity design is the simple communication of the client's public image. Brand should reflect the company, and the products or services that company provides. A good brand identity enables a company to position itself visually in the market alongside its competitors.
My overall task is to create such a brand identity and brand identity program - from the logo through appropriate design applications, such as stationery, menus, napkins, uniforms, web home page and signage. I must choose one of the particular culturally-based themes to reflect the bistro's personality - give it a name and design a brand identity (logo) and set of brand guidelines. It is important to have an idea of how the concept of a particular country and culture will work as a space where people will be spending some time eating and drinking. The brand identity for the chosen bistro must reflect this concept. Each of these bistros should also reflect the area they are located in, basing on my demographic and style research.
Of all the options, I chose British Colonial themed bistro of which will be located in the area of Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur. Designed in Adobe InDesign and Adobe Illustrator, this is the brand identity manual for the bistro, showing a set of consistent and flexible guidelines and rules so that future items can be designed using these guidelines and rules and remain part of a growing consistent brand identity.
